Good points. It sounds like a good tool to have around for those instances.

when I blow a keg, then clean it, I mix up a pint of BLC in the keg, and run that through the lines. I let it soak a half hour, then flush with water.

I've been using this and it has been my favorite DIY project yet. Simple but really useful.

The DIY line cleaner pump is also great for sanitizing lines for the BMBF.

Another ++ for the pump sprayer line cleaner. I mix up a quart of BLC, then run about half through using the sprayer. I let it sit for 10 minutes or so, then run the rest through. I refill the sprayer with plain water and flush the line with that. Before using to dispense another keg, I flush the line with Star San.
